Toyota unveils TRD Editions of the Camry and Corolla at SEMA

Toyota has introduced the SEMA Edition TRD Camry and SEMA Edition TRD Corolla in Las Vegas.

Starting with the Camry, it features a modest body kit that includes a front lip spoiler, extended side skirts and a new rear diffuser.  The model also has TRD lowering springs which reduce the ride height by 1 inch up front and 1.5 inches out back.   Rounding out the exterior changes are 21-inch alloy wheels with a bronze finish.

In terms of performance, there isn’t much to report as the only modifications are new struts, beefier brake pads and the addition of a cat-back dual exhaust system.  Toyota didn’t say if the exhaust increases performance but the standard Camry XSE V6 has 268 bhp and 248 lb-ft of torque.

The real knockout is the SEMA Edition TRD Corolla which looks absolutely fantastic.  It is based on the 2016 Corolla LE Eco and features a sporty body kit that includes a front lip spoiler, revised side skirts and a rear diffuser.  Other highlights include a cat-back exhaust system, lowering springs and 19-inch wheels with a bronze finish.

Power is provided by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine which develops 140 bhp and 126 lb-ft of torque.  While the engine is normally connected to a continuously variable transmission, Toyota opted for a six-speed manual instead.
